Just came across this in another group.
3527621 Cpl Charles Stott Kneeling second from the left.

Cpl. Charles Stott of the Machester Regiment, 1 Battalion is pictured here ( second from left, kneeling) on Jan. 30, 1945. Somehow he had swum ashore, evaded capture, traversed the Zambales Mt. range to join up with a guerrilla group lead by a small cadre of Americans who had fought on Bataan, and then take part as a combatant fighting against the Japanese in the recapture of the Philippines.

henry[CLAY]connor was the leader of this group,operating near the zambales mountains

the above list of manchesters on the hofuku maru is probably the complete list,captain nigel,keith evans left chungkai for japan with over 60 men

captain nigel,keith evans older brother major michael,patrick,ernest evans was also in the 1st battalion,he was the brigade major of 1st malay brigade,captured the same day,their father wilfred keith evans was a captain in the 2nd battalion at mons in 1914 later brigadier W.K evans,before he died,he was proud to see that his two sons had joined his old regiment

when major evans was eventually repatriated,he was in a very emanciated condition,his family would never have anything more to do with anything that was made in japan
